Etsy Feature - Pink Dawn

I love the idea of helping other etsy sellers so I have decided to feature an etsy seller every once in awhile on here. The first shop I am featuring is Pink Dawn. I am in love with her jewelry! I love everything from the different designs and colors of every piece of jewelry! I asked Dawn to answer a couple questions about her shop...

Please introduce yourself and your shop.

"My name is Dawn and I live in the gorgeous Swan Valley region of Perth Western Australia. I count myself very lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world. I am a wife and a mum to 2 beautiful girls aged 8 and 4. They are my biggest fans and love to see what I have made. They always ask if I can make them one too.We live with our grumpy cat who likes to bite my mother in law and our cocker spaniel, who has eyelashes that would make any female jealous.My shop is Pinkdawn. I make jewelry for all occasions plus bridal jewelry and tiaras from my home studio."

What is your favorite item from your shop?

"My Favourite item in my shop right now is my newly listed Spiced Berry Bracelet. I love the mixture of seasonal rich colours. It was inspired by the multitude of grape colours found in this wine region."

What influenced you to get into jewelry making?

"I found jewelry making quite by accident. I have always had the need to be creative and I am at my most happiest when I am making something. I have run out of rooms to make over at home.I used to make bridal gowns and was taught how to hand bead the dresses. I discovered that I really enjoyed the delicate and at times fiddly nature of beading. After a trip to my local craft store I wandered down the bead aisle, somewhere I hadnt bothered about before. I was amazed at the colours and variety of beads on offer and my mind was racing with possible designs. Pinkdawn came from there.True to my bridal roots, I offer a range of elegant bridal jewelry and tiaras for the classic bride, I adore the look of Swarovski pearl and crystal. I have though recently started to make more and more 'any occasion' jewelry. I find I am drawn to amazing materials and beautiful colours that seem to morph in to slightly vintage inspired pieces."

And of course I have to throw in a random off topic question haha!

Do you prefer your toilet paper to roll over or under?

"Toliet roll has to be over the top. If i go to a house where the toliet roll is under then I have to change it first. Im fussy like that. If its under you have to waste time searching for the end. If its on top then the end is always where you want it :)"

These are a few of my favorite pieces in Dawn's shop...

Swirling Hearts - Pink Glass Beaded Necklace with Brass Heart - $24

Swarovski Pearl and Golden Crystal Necklace - $60

Ruby Rose - Red Rosebud and Antique Brass Earrings - $14

I especially love that golden crystal necklace! And I can really see how wine grapes helped to influence the spiced berry bracelet.
